Another excerpt from "The Eyes of Alexander"...

"“That’s for you,” he said, nodding towards the bag.
I picked it up and peeked inside.  It was my prescription! I flushed crimson.
“Now before you get mad at me, remember that I did this for both of us,” Xander explained in an attempt to obviate my wrath.  “The sooner you get started on those, the sooner we can stop using those damn condoms.”
Had the man no shame? I mean, Lucas and Bennett could probably hear him.  Clearly, he didn't feel the need to be discreet about our sex life.  Well, two can play at that game.
“Lucas, thanks so much for getting my birth control pills!” I called out boldly, enjoying the shocked stares from all three men.  Well, I couldn’t see Lucas’ face, but I saw the backs of his ears redden and Bennett briefly turn to gape at me.  I smugly turned to see Xander’s shocked face. 
“You don’t need to respond to my audacious girlfriend, Lucas,” Xander called out and then turned to me.  “As ever, Miss Windsor, you never cease to surprise me.”  He kissed my cheek proudly.
I was proud of myself, too.  My victory swallowed up my embarrassment and I did a pom-poms cheer in my head.  You go girl!"

Confusing review

Here's a review I received on Goodreads.  I appreciate all reviews, good, mediocre or bad, but this one confused me.  What does "like this but wanted to it more" mean? I'm assuming she left out a word or two and I have no idea what "too much 50" means.

Liked this but wanted to it more. Not poorly written. Too much 50, too much that seemed really a logic jump where it brought me out of the story to think to myself wow that's really not how real life works. A cute little story though.

Coming Soon!


Aubrey Windsor sees a bright future with Alexander Ayes until the darkness engulfs them…

After surviving the unthinkable—escaping the jaws of death and the clutches of a murderous family, Aubrey and Alexander struggle to put the jagged pieces of their lives back together.

Determined to bury the past, they renew their commitment to each other and normalcy.  Alexander goes back to work and Aubrey embarks on an exciting career as a writer.  Exploiting domesticity and new sexual scenarios, their exorbitantly thrilling life is fleeting.  Aubrey is plagued by a jilted therapist, a lecherous hoodlum and a stalker on a misguided and warped mission to even a score.

As Alexander attempts to protect the only woman he’s ever loved, and Aubrey wrestles with her love for a man who continues to exert control and harbor secrets, unexpected circumstances set events in motion that is life changing for both of them…


The Eyes of Aubriana is the second book of the compelling sensual series, the Eyes Trilogy.

But that world comes with a high price; dealing with his tortured past and facing their dangerous future.

White-hot sex blooms into a love that begins to heal damage from Alexander’s tormented childhood, but their bright future is darkened when a killer with pent-up rage emerges.  After barely escaping with their lives, the couple must now combat an unknown evil before the next attempt is deadly…
